Monday, April 8 at 7:30 p.m.- Irish Heritage Quebec will hold an activity in McMahon Hall, 1145 de Salaberry in Quebec City. Michael Collins will give a presentation entitled In Search of a Voice, which will discuss the emergence of policy within the historical record leading up to and through the hunger years. This officious voice of neo-economists emerged as clinical, data-driven and bureaucratic and anathema to sympathy and state-sanctioned charity. Refreshments will be served and parking stubs for Îlot St-Patrick will be validated. For more information phone Irish Heritage Quebec at 418-704-3404.
